Village Wellness Spa Experience – Sherwood Location

2016-06-16 22.48.24I had the pleasure to attend Village Wellness Spa’s 27th Anniversary celebration (all thanks to the bestie, MakeUpBySehar) and boy, was I impressed!

The Mississauga Sherwood location was tucked away in a plaza. On the outside it looks like a regular spa, but once you tour inside, you will be wow’d! Newly renovated, quaint, elegant, relaxing ambiance with lovely décor welcomes you as you walk in.  One thing that caught my attention was the variety of products this spa carried. Carefully selected quality lines, mostly with higher end skin care products, but very high quality.. it was a no-brainer that these ladies know what they’re doing. A few brands to mention that they carry are:

  • Skinceuticals – fantastic lineup of skincare products to keep your face looking flawless
  • iSclinical 
  • NuFaceface toning devices – made my face look so slim almost instantly!
  • BeautyBlender – a staple in any woman’s makeup applicator collection
  • S’well Water Bottleshands down, are the absolute best water bottles ever!
  • Swiss Line – I’m not in the market these products quite yet, but I have heard many great things about them!
  • Jane Iredalegreat makeup products that will keep your skin healthy
  • Decleor – such amazing scented products

There are many others not listed but these brands in particular stood out to me since I have either heard of, or have personally used and enjoyed it.

It was my first time doing Microdermabrasion. To be honest, I didn’t think my skin required that treatment since I typically take care of my skin, but I thought it would be really cool to try it out. For those of you who don’t know what Microdermabrasion is, it is a high performance treatment that effectively provides a deep exfoliation, and helps to smooth the surface of the skin.  It is great for eliminating pigmentation as well. I had Giselle perform the treatment on me and it was such a lovely experience. She walked me through the treatment step-by-step and educated me during the entire process.

I was pleasantly surprised after my treatment.. my skin was SUPER smooth and remained so for the next few weeks. All the dirt get sucked out and it felt amazing afterwards. Giselle gave me some Skinceuticals products to try out since that was what she used on me. I have kept up with using the product for almost a month now and I am in love. I had so many compliments on how much my skin was glows. I usually wear minimal makeup (mineral foundation or a light liquid foundation) to cover up blemishes and redness, but since the treatment I haven’t worn any foundation since my skin didn’t need it! I’ve been keeping up with using Skinceuticals products and am really enjoying it.  Below are some of the goodies that the staff were so kind to provide me with. I shall do a review for some of my favourite products in the future.

Charlotte Tilbury Luminous Modern-Matte Lipstick Review

Sample of Charlotte Tilbury Luminous Modern-Matte Lipstick in Amazing Grace

amazing-grace-bullet

Hello lovelies! After being away for a brief period of time I have decided to re-vamp my blog. Thank you for your patience.

I got a gift bag from Holt Renfrew cosmetics filled with samples of all their top selling products. Lately I’ve been in love with YSL lipsticks but I had to give Charlotte Tilbury a try. Besides, look how cute this sample size is!

Such a unique way to create a sample size. You simply take the sample, fold it in half horizontally and smack your lips on to transfer the colour; so easy!

Here are my thoughts on this product:

Pros:

  • great everyday lipstick
  • long lasting colour (I did not have to reapply and the colour stained my lips for about 4 hours)
  • moisturizing (my lips usually dry out quickly with lipsticks, but I didn’t have an issue with this)
  • a good line if you are looking for more natural muted colours

Cons:

  • for those who like bright, bold colours, this will not be your go-to

Rating: 4.5/5

Thanks for stopping by!
